The DustCount 9000 is our very popular lightweight, direct-reading Optical Particle Counter. It is available in both Intrinsic Safe and non-IS versions. The 9000 combines the advantages of real-time dust monitoring with a built-in filter cassette for sample composition analysis and HSE 4.0 networking for effective efficient dust monitoring. The 9000 supports interchangeable impactors for PM 2.5, PM 4, and PM 10.
